The daily whip


Recommended Posts

So, i posted a while back the volvo bust on me again. That's now fixed and touch wood (pats head), should keep going for a while (prob 12 months at most till i replace it). So it got me thinking. What next?

I kinda have specific requirments,

1. Comfortable

2. enough power to sit on the motorway

3. cruise control

4. if seats are leather then they must be heated (i use the excuse of the mrs wont let me if not, but the truth is i dont want a cold **** on leather hahaha)

5. prefer AWD or FWD sinc eit will be all year round

6. reliable

7. mpg isn't that critical, i do about 40 miles a day which isn't much, 10k even if i did that every working day of every week in the year, which I don't.

8. cheap rat **** fuel

So taking that into account i came up with this as a car to find when the time is right,

Always liked em, but never sat down and thought about it logically (always thought of the STI instead but then would need to worry about 99ron and the 2.5 issues). 2.0 non turbo engine which is pretty bomb proof. Well built and foresters are known for taking a pounding, plus being great in winter.


Anyone else have any thoughts? other possibilities., i did ponder on a freelander 2 in another thread but they seem to suffer reliability and not cheap.

I have been keeping track of legacy / outbacks for all of your criteria - prefer the looks of the slightly older versions headlights

I dont know about the wheel base difference between fozzies and legacy / outbacks but the fozzies do have slightly better ground clearance over the outbacks


but completely distracted now - looking at JDM twinscroll legacy imports with paddle shift and SI drive :biggrin:
